Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday called the abduction of scores of girls from a school in the northeast by the Islamist militant group Boko Haram a national disaster and said he was sending more troops and reconnaissance aircraft to look for them.

"They withdrew the military personnel last week, which was not even known to us".

"Before then, Dapchi has been peaceful, there was never such incident".

Heavily armed jihadists stormed the boarding school in the remote town, forcing terrified students to flee into the surrounding bush.

Amina Usman, a 15-year-old student, was among the pupils who escaped the attack on Government Girls Technical College. Residents said they saw Boko Haram insurgents taking away girls by truck when they attacked the school.

Relatives of missing school girls react in Dapchi in the northeastern state of Yobe. He recalled that it was the second time in four days that a Federal Government delegation would visit Yobe over the issue of the missing Dapchi girls.

"On behalf of the 19 Northern Governors' forum, we have come to show our sympathy and let you know that we are with you in this traumatic period", he said.

The governor in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Terver Akase, urged security agencies to ensure that the rest of the girls were rescued from their abductors.

Bashir Manzo, who has been heading up the relatives' efforts, said they only took information when a girl's mother or father appeared in person to report a missing child.

"No denial, nor conspiracy theory as was done in the case of Chibok girls abduction under PDP-led federal government".

The delegation comprises the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, and the Minister of Interior, Lt. - Gen. Abdulrahman Dambazau (retired).

The Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, and that of interior, Abdulrahman Dambazau, are now in Yobe as part of efforts to review the situation.
